Wielu o dalekich wyprawach marzy, ale tylko nieliczni naprawdę wyruszają w nieznane, przed siebie. Do takich osób należy dokumentalistka Eliza Kubarska, która pasję podróżniczą połączyła z filmową...

canal+review

'Walking Under Water' is "deeply moving account of human struggle in the natural and spirit worlds".

LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL JURY

'K2. touching the sky' led us down a provocative and honest path of questioning the price of mountain motivation, love, and ultimately the fine balance of life and death. ...compels the audience to keep looking within their own lives."

BANFF MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL JURY

Polish photographer David Kaszlikowski took a series of stunning photographs of a glacier in the Karakoram region of Pakistan while on a film expedition.

THE GUARDIAN

(Walking Under Water) ...a story of poverty, dignity, suffering, but also of love for freedom and for a sublime and hostile nature... A sad, beautiful and poetic documentary. Neorealist!

 WWF Italia Prize Jury, Gran Paradiso Film Festival

Photos by David Kaszlikowski voted among "the most stunning drone pictures of 2014" by Dronestagram.

BBC NEWS

"What happened on Pam island"  filmed... to capture not just the feats of mountaineering, but also their own beautiful (and complicated) romance. This original climbing film reveals new motivation to conquer the unclimbed: a kiss at the top.

TELLURIDE MOUNTAIN FILM FESTIVAL

W błyskotliwym dokumencie Elizy Kubarskiej kamera niczemu się nie dziwi, na bohaterów nie patrzy jak na egzotyczną ciekawostkę, a ich świat - zbudowany z wody, ciszy i głębokich wierzeń - odsłania przed widzem stopniowo.
